East Beast Challenge
East Beast Challenge

Chair:
When:
September 10-September 28, 2017

This year, we have a goal to raise $15,000! Our goal this year is to get every family to participate! If you can give $5, $25, $50 or even $100, every donation counts!! Of course we encourage each family to raise as much as they can to support East PTO! All funds go directly back to our teachers and kids! This year our purpose is to raise as much money as we can to go towards Phase 1 of building an outdoor classroom for East! This will initially look like a general shelter with tables under it, but will be so much more in the coming years! We have to build a good foundation in order for the rest of it to build strong on it! October 1-October 5 will be a week of celebrating our success of raising money and getting excited for our 3rd annual East Beast Challenge, which will be held on Friday, October 5th!
